Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too. We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments. Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. 1 Jn 5:1-3. It’s incredible that when we accept Jesus into our heart we become God’s children, a part of His family. In God’s family we must love His other family members too, who are a part of His church. As part of His family, God’s given us His commandments to protect us so that we can keep our peace whilst we live in the freedom and liberty we have in Jesus. God who knows the beginning from the end knows what’s best for us as we trust Him and walk in His ways. Praise God today that with Jesus in our heart we have become a part of God’s family to live in the abundant life He had always intended for us.
